You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool COVID-19. After insisting for months in public that coronavirus wasn’t a threat, Donald Trump himself has contracted the virus. According to Dr. Gupta, it doesn’t look good for Trump.
At over 6’3 and 240 pounds, Trump is large and out of shape. As his mental health declines, coronavirus has just complicated things for the embattled president even more. The real question is, what does this diagnosis mean?
Under Trump’s watch, hundreds of thousands of Americans have died from the virus. Due to Trump’s intentionally downplaying the virus, we’ve lost precious lives. His contracting the disease is just proof for his followers that it exists. Coronavirus itself isn’t political. No matter how much Trump tried to make it, it isn’t and never has been.
Trump does not deserve to be president. The same disease he let ravage Black communities has come to his yard to roost. Hopefully, he still has his supply of hydroxychloroquine.
